I hope you guys are having a great week...it's inching ever closer to Christmas and I am nowhere near done with my Christmas cards, but I thought I would sneak in a birthday card I made for a friend of mine. I used the colors from this week's Color Throwdown:
and the sketch from this weeks Mojo Monday:
Every time Julee does a round or square option, I SAY I am going to do the round, but always end up with a square..lol. I"m so predictable, no? :) Anyway, here is my card:
I just really love using my MFT Rolled Flower die! I have found that it works best on felt and card stock that has been manipulated somehow. So, if I use my embossing folder on the card stock first, it seems to "roll" better. I haven't been able to make it look pretty with regular card stock (papertrey or stampin up anyway)..so that's just something to think about if you want to buy it (which I would totally suggest!). I also really like these A La Mode stamps from MFT..I cannot wait till my new Copics come in from papertrey so my people will look more natural..any day now!
Ok, well that's all from me. I better get going. Hope your day has gone well. Thanks, as always, for stopping by! Laters..
